According to a report from 90min, Man City have slapped a £40 million price tag on defender John Stones as Premier League club Newcastle United reportedly eye a swoop – prompting plenty of Sky Blues to react on Twitter. 

Stones, who has started just 10 league games under Pep Guardiola this season, registering an impressive 94% pass accuracy, still hasn’t done enough to impress the Spaniard – so much so that he has struggled for game time behind main centre-back pairing Fernandinho and Nicolas Otamendi.

Who would you prefer to start alongside a fully fit Laporte?

Despite impressing in flashes alongside Aymeric Laporte last campaign, famously clearing a Mohamed Salah attempt off the goal line, a moment which debatably helped us retain our second successive league crown, Stones has struggled to replicate that form this time around – with pundit Alan Shearer claiming he would ‘love‘ to play against the Englishman and Otamendi.

In response to the rumour Newcastle are interested in the ‘special‘ 25-year-old, these supporters have flocked to give their opinion – find all of their best comments down below.
